    Abstract

    Application of data and information to solve municipal infrastructure problems and enhance system operation is the ultimate key to a successful geographic information system (GIS) program. This paper highlights a number of application issues to be considered in developing GIS application packages used in the planning, design, operation, and management of water resource and utility infrastructure systems. Some areas that require standardization in the application of GIS are also addressed.

    Keywords:

    geographic information systems (GIS), utility infrastructure, water supply, computer program, computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), relational database, interactive software, hydraulic network, application system, user base, standardization, map scale
